comment Spacing around CJK text with ucharclasses package
Unfortunately, while this does fix the Japanese spacing, it breaks the Arabic. Possibly related to this question. I'll wait to see if that question gets an answer before updating this one.

comment XeTeX UNICODE Table
Note that the Arabic text is wrong in two ways. First the glyphs fail to combine with adjacent ones. Second the words are ordered from left to right, even though the letters in the words are ordered right to left.

comment Japanese font with good kanji coverage for xelatex on linux
In the end I went with the Noto fonts and set up a chroot to allow me to run a more recent version of xetex.

comment Spacing around CJK text with ucharclasses package
Marvellous. For what it's worth, the reason for the Western quotation marks (and also the \texttt) is that it's actually a code fragment embedded in and English technical document discussing internationalisation in the code.

Aozora Mincho aren't packaged for Mint Linux, though I could probably install them by hand. Noto Sans CJK is, unfortunately, one of the fonts that requires a more recent version of xelatex. However your suggestion of Aozora Mincho got me trying some other fonts with "Mincho" in their name, and Takao Mincho works nicely, and looks to my untrained eye fairly similar to ST Song. Takao Gothic seems to work as the sans font. So I have a solution. Thanks for your help!

Unfortunately, it seems not, and I can't find them package for Mint Linux.

comment Enumerate with two separate numbers
Two problems with this. First, it doesn't seem possible to not put an Arabic number on the first entry. The Arabic numbers are simply cross-references to later sections, so it's quite common for the first name not to have one. Second and more cosmetically, because it uses a nested enumeration, it's hard to stop there from being extra spacing before an Arabic-numbered line. (This can be fixed with careful setting of the spacings.)
